New York City Exit Signs

New York City enforces additional requirements for Exit Signs under the State of New Yorks existing codes. Enforcement of building and fire codes throughout New York are handled by the Division of Code Enforcement and Administration under the New York Department of State.

New York City Exit Sign Requirements

New York City Exit Signs require the word "EXIT" to be Red in color, 8 inches tall and have a 1 inch line thickness (stroke). NYC Exit Signs have higher visibility since standard Exit Signs have only a 6 inch letter height and smaller stroke. In addition, these units must be of metal or other durable materials. The Exit Light Co. selection of NYC Approved Emergency Lighting meet NYC codes.
